from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
So were you like me, watching the first two nights of the NHL playoffs on television and thinking you’d stepped into a time machine?
Suddenly, it was 1986, all over again. Wayne and the boys were lighting it up out West. Bossy and his gang were still a force in the East. Was that Peter Stastny scoring key goals for Quebec, or Paul Stastny scoring them for the former Nordiques, now the Colorado Avalanche? Neal Broten starring for the Minnesota North Stars or Zach Parise for the Minnesota Wild? If Patrick Roy was on the ice instead of behind the bench, would his team have given up four goals?
Maybe, because it seemed like, in the first 48 hours, everybody was giving up goals – 53 total in seven games, six of which produced seven goals or more. That giddy euphoria coming from a nearby living room – that’s the sound of playoff poolies everywhere, off to a roaring start.
